Today didn't start out great. At breakfast both of the boys were crying. I started to get emotional and had to reminds myself that they will both be grown up all to soon... which made me emotional in a totally different way. Silas is on call for work so I had to take the boys to church alone. Gideon was difficult at church so I didn't stick around to chat afterwards. But the sermon was really wonderful, as per usual.
I stopped at goodwill on our way home. Zeke has outgrown his swing so I was looking for a jumperoo. I was able to find one for about $3 and I also picked up a rocker for about $5 that can double as a cradle for when Zeke takes his naps downstairs.
When I arrived home I found Silas had cleaned the whole downstairs, including the kitchen, while I was gone. I love that man. So I made orange chicken with green beans and we all sat around enjoying each other's company. Then the boys went down for naps and I set about the task of cleaning the goodwill toys. It occurred to me, as I was taking the cloth covers off to throw in the wash, that it wouldn't be too difficult make much nicer cotton covers instead of the ugly synthetic ones.
So before I put it in the wash I traced pieces for the rocker cover. An hour and half later it was done and I couldn't be more pleased! Here's the before and after picture. The new cover even matches the base better.
